Terrorism most frightful threat to peace: President Pranab
Dhaka: President Pranab Mukherjee has said terrorism is the "most frightful threat to peace" after the World War II and the Cold War and cautioned against making a distinction between "good terrorism and bad terrorism".
"I have always said that terrorism is no one`s friend. It does not belong to any religion and has no geographical boundaries. It only aims at attacking human beings and humanity as a whole. After the World War II and the Cold War, terrorism is the most frightful threat to peace. So, I think we need combat it together," Mukherjee told `ATN Bangla` TV channel.
Asked if he thinks that religion is killing politics, he said, "No religion supports terrorism. Religion always talks about humanity. Sometimes wrong or twisted interpretation of religion can mislead some people."
"I don`t think there is any good terrorism or bad terrorism. Not only in the developing countries but this problem is faced by even developed countries like Europe and America. Terrorism is all encompassing, without any political or geographical boundaries," the President said, asking all countries to unite in the fight against terrorism.
